Upon graduating from the Suncoast School of Massage Therapy in Tampa, Florida in 1988, Dr. Jeff went to work at Aaron Mattes’ rehabilitation center in Sarasota, Florida. Mr. Mattes is well known for using active isolated stretching techniques as a key part of rehabilitation as well as to assist in enhancing athletic performance. The training and experienced gained working with Aaron, led to a teaching position for Jeff back at the Suncoast School. He was fortunate to have the opportunity to teach there from the end of 1988 until May of 2008 when the school closed. For the first 14 years, Dr. Jeff taught students about active isolated stretching. In the remaining half a dozen years at Suncoast, Dr. Jeff taught the Asian studies classes, and the energetic approach to healing such as Shiatsu and Reiki, to help prepare the students to take and pass the State Board exam.

Dr. Jeff attended the East West College of Natural Medicine in Sarasota, Florida. In December of 2005, he graduated with a Masters’ Degree in Oriental Medicine and a Bachelor Degree in Health Sciences. With successful completion of his exams, Dr. Jeff was Board Certified as an Acupuncture Physician. In January of 2006, he traveled to Beijing, China for advanced training in Traditional Chinese Medicine at China’s top army hospital. He is currently an Adjunct Faculty at Everglades University in the
Alternative Medicine Program. Dr. Jeff has been approved as a continuing education provider
